Writing for Christ and Pop Culture
There are two avenues for pursuing publication at Christ and Pop Culture:
1. Write a WEB article for our website (unpaid)
Our site content is primarily written by our paid staff writers, but we typically reserve one slot a week for a WEB article from a guest writer. Please note that WEB articles contributed by guest writers are unpaid. Guest-written WEB articles are unpaid, 1,000–2,000 words. See pitch and writing guidelines at the bottom of this page.
- HOW TO SUBMIT YOUR PITCH: Send a pitch anytime on any topic via the form above to have your WEB article considered for our site content.
- EXAMPLES: See recent posts from our homepage to view past web articles
2. Write a FEATURE article for our digital magazine (paid)
Answer a specific call for FEATURE articles that support a specific theme chosen for an upcoming issue of our digital magazine. Please note that unless you are answering our call for FEATURE articles, your article falls under #1 above, an unpaid WEB article. Magazine FEATURE articles are paid, long-form articles, 1,500–3,000 words. See pitch and writing guidelines at the bottom of this page.
- HOW TO SUBMIT YOUR PITCH: Send a pitch via the submission instructions in the current Call for Pitches post to have your FEATURE ARTICLE considered for our next digital magazine issue.

Pitch & Writing Guidelines
- Be sure your pitch has a strong pop culture framework.
- Do not send a full article for your pitch; we won’t have the time to read unsolicited pieces.
- Keep your pitch to one paragraph. Include a thesis and some ideas about how you will develop your thesis throughout the piece.
- Keep our audience in mind. We focus on pop culture from a Christian perspective. We recommend reading a few magazine features and articles tagged Editor’s Picks to get a sense of what we publish.
- Think cultural analysis rather than devotional or first-person narratives.
- Include a two-sentence bio to help us understand why you would be qualified to write on this topic.
- Include links to two or three articles that you have published, even if it is your own blog (but preferably at other publications).
- We do not have time to respond to every pitch.
- We primarily publish original content and only in very rare cases do we re-publish a previously released article.
- We do not accept sponsored posts or links.
